Kayleigh Goldsworthy has spent over a decade in the music industry, working from the ground up in all respects. A classically trained violinist of 23 years, she attended SUNY Fredonia and received a BA in Interdisciplinary Studies, Music Business, as well as a BA in Business Administration in 2008. She additionally plays guitar, piano, voice, and a vast array of other stringed instruments.
Starting in 2000, her and her sister formed the Syracuse indie rock group The Scarlet Ending, and went on to tour all over the world with USO and Armed Forces Entertainment, as well as several independent headlining and supporting tours of the US. She acquired a publishing deal with Cherry Lane Music, MTV, Wonderlous Music Publishing, and a management contract with Sunshine, Sachs, and Associates through the band’s life cycle, where they announced a hiatus in 2012.
Kayleigh continued to perform solo, and in November of 2013 released her debut solo record, “Burrower,” to rave reviews. She performed alongside Chuck Ragan, Dave Hause, Dan Andriano, Laura Jane Grace, Cory Branan, and several more on “The Revival Tour,” and has joined Ragan onstage at Warped Tour, and The Hotel Cafe in Los Angeles, CA. Described by Cory Branan as “Gillian Welch meets Loretta Lynn,” her first effort was a departure from the indie rock sound of The Scarlet Ending, and delved more into her personal life with bluegrass undertones.
She has also joined the likes of Dave Hause, Frank Iero, Kevin Devine and more as a touring multi-instrumentalist extraordinaire, and most recently, put out a brand new solo studio album, Learning To Be Happy, in May 2022!
